Presently, I suppose the parameters are not modified so many times.
They are set only on build time or maintenance.

I think we will need metapages in the future, but not right now. If we will
provide an automatic configurator for fillfactors (or other parameters),
parameters might be changed every time the configurator runs, for example,
per autovacuum.

I agree, but it is easy to move the metadata from catalog to metapages.
So the metapages thought can be reconciled among proposals that must need it.
(pg_class_nt and dead tuples bitmaps?)
